New Exhibit Focuses upon Local Egyptologist and Collector


I am pleased to announce that a new exhibit has been launched in Tamworth to celebrate the links that Tamworth has with ancient Egypt.  The first stage of Tamworth's "Egyptian Trail" can be found at the Tamworth Library where the collection of the local benefactor Reverend William McGregor is featured.  I have been delighted to have worked as consultant to the exhibitors, Museufy.  The group, led by Mark Lorenzo, are a mixture of museum workers and designers who in their own words are 'trying to reveal the extraordinary in the ordinary' and are 'using the power of history and museum collections for the benefit of local areas'.  The exhibition will remain in the library till October when it is hoped that it will then tour other locations within the Staffordshire area.

Here is a link to the local press - Tamworth Herald.
